Current Exhibition

Free as a bird - Heimler and Proc

 August 4 - 26

Opening 6pm Wednesday 4 August

Where does modern humanity fit in with the natural world? We are more and more an urban culture

and to many the natural environment of mountains and forests are only infrequently visited. In this series

Heimler and Proc reflect on our relationship with nature. Human figures are stripped of their protective

garments and pose naked in the bush, together with fauna as it is most loved by New Zealanders,

our native birds. The figures sometimes look comfortable in their surroundings, sometimes less so.

We are asked to see ourselves as part of the animal world  and to think about how humans today relate

and connect themselves to the natural world.
